    all the facts, and even when you have all the factrs, it's unwise to present them unless you are willing to tell the readers "everything" which implies that readers are willing go through the material. You edit out stuff that you think is peripheral, and it ain't. The bottom line s that HaArerz isn't always suited to the presentation of Rabbinical decisions because most journalists aren't trained Talmudic scholars that can go through the material intelligently. All they do is copy the text, assuming that is what it means, when it may be one opinion of many that have yet to be sifted out before a final decsion is made. The result is disinformation that causes politictions that are even less well versed in the Sources say things "as if" they understand what's goin' on. When the "contraversy" over whether Pluto was a planet, and actually there was another, called Chriron, HaAretz kept quiet because their journalists don't know much about Astrophysics, but it seems that the opposite is true when they report "news" regarding Jewish issues.
